News from UNIGIS in Latin America

Over the last two months, UNIGIS put considerable effort in expanding its activities in Colombia. Our team from the study center in Cali exhibited at the technology fair ’Geomatica Andina 2012’ which took place between June, 4th and 5th in Bogotá, D.C. presenting the program to an interested audience of GIS-practitioners in Colombia. 
On July, 11st Richard Resl, director of UNIGIS in Latin America and Francisco Piedrahita, rector of one of the most prestigious Colombian universities, ICESI in Cali, signed an agreement of cooperation. From now on ICESI will act as official academic partner of UNIGIS in Colombia, giving UNIGIS activities in Colombia a strong and sustainable institutional background. In return, the Colombian UNIGIS team will train academic staff of ICESI in basic GIS-skill. We are looking forward to a successful cooperation!
